Pope Francis recognises the difficulties encountered by families with members suffering from drug addiction. The Holy Father calls it “one of the scourges of our time, causing immense suffering and even breakup for many families. The same is true of alcoholism, gambling and other addictions” (AL, 51). This presentation discusses the challenges facing families that have been confronted by drug addiction and turns to the life of the vulnerable Matt Talbot to see if there is anything that they can learn form his journey.
